THE design concept

Sometimes, all you need is an image of the end result. Enter – the concept board or as we like to call it 'Design A Porter'. An organized display of furniture, lighting, accessories, wall art and colour schemes. It is your design roadmap to a successful end result. Used a reference point, it guides the design process and keeps the vision alive.

Our client meetings, the lifestyle questionnaire, your own collages from shelter magazines and online sites will provide the general direction for the concept board. We’ll analyze your preferences. Highlight any style and colour patterns. This analysis will help us pull together a concept board specific to you.

The images and materials are carefully selected to evoke a feeling and connection to the completed room. Our concept boards are digitally created. However, we will include physical samples where appropriate to further enhance the feeling of colour and texture.
